Cardiology Diagnostic Testing Q & A

What is cardiology diagnostic testing?

Cardiology diagnostic testing refers to the various tests used to evaluate heart and blood vessel structure and function. Your heart and blood vessels deliver oxygen-rich blood to all your body’s organs, tissues, and cells. 

Problems with your heart or blood vessels significantly affect your total health. Cardiovascular diagnostic testing at Desert Cardiovascular Consultants aims to find the problem so you can get the most effective treatment. 

I have chest pain. What type of cardiology diagnostic testing do I need?

Chest pain is a symptom you may have with a heart condition like coronary artery disease (CAD). Before moving ahead with diagnostic testing, Dr. Khan completes a thorough evaluation to understand your symptoms and health history. This helps him determine what types of testing you need.

Some of the cardiology diagnostic testing available at Desert Cardiovascular Consultants include:

Stress test

A stress test is a heart test that evaluates how well your heart functions when it’s working hard. Desert Cardiovascular Consultants offers exercise and pharmacological stress testing. 


An echocardiogram is an ultrasound test that evaluates the structure and function of your heart and the movement of blood through each chamber. 

Vascular ultrasound

A vascular ultrasound evaluates the movement of blood through your peripheral arteries and the veins outside of your heart. This test looks for conditions like peripheral artery disease (PAD) and venous insufficiency, which may cause poor circulation in the extremities (arms and legs). 

Sleep study

A sleep study monitors your breathing and brain activity while you sleep, helping diagnose sleep disorders like sleep apnea. These types of sleep conditions affect heart health.

Dr. Khan talks to you about the type of cardiology diagnostic testing you need and what you can expect during testing. Desert Cardiovascular Consultants is a one-stop shop offering complete cardiology care. For chest pain, you may need stress testing and an echocardiogram.
